The latest trends and advancements in autonomous vehicles and mobility technology will be showcased in Dubai later this month.

The third edition of the Dubai World Congress for Self-Driving Transport will bring together leading experts, including policy makers, researchers and scholars.

More than 2,000 international participants and over 60 exhibitors from top self-driving transport companies will be part of the event which runs from September 26-27 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The winners of the Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport will also be honoured on the sidelines.

Under the theme 'Empowering Mobility 4.0', the Congress unites global experts and specialists to discuss future mobility solutions and topics.

The event will feature numerous sessions, seminars and panel discussions on the future of autonomous vehicles and mobility.

These dialogues promote the exchange of innovative ideas and technology perspectives from around the world.

"This aligns with Dubai's vision to become a global platform for leadership in self-driving transport and its goal to transform 25% of mobility journeys in Dubai into smart and driverless journeys by 2030," said Ahmed Bahrozyan, CEO of the Roads and Transport Authority's (RTA) Public Transport Agency.

"The Congress also supports the government’s forward-thinking approach to adopting innovations in autonomous mobility technology," he added.
